Georgina’s research interests include corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, securities regulation and corporate governance. Her current research examines the fragmented and diffuse shareholder base of UK and other European companies with an aim of creating a shareholder taxonomy that will challenge the efficacy of the shareholder primacy norm prevalent in UK company law and the corporate governance codes of EU Member States. Georgina’s broader research aims to introduce proposals for reform of company law and securities regulation (UK, EU) that will promote the objectives of value creation and sustainable business practices. Georgina is a member of the Sustainable Market Actors project, which as of March 2016 is funded by the EU's Framework programme Horizon 2020, involving scholars wishing to contribute to research that will promote global sustainable development.
